The LIFT Team
We have developed a simple and clinical approach to clean the skin, that combines safety and education, into an easy, affordable and effective program dedicated to skin health, for a lifetime of healthy and beautiful skin.
After receiving her MD from the University of Toronto in 1990, she completed a rotating internship, followed by a year of residency in obstetrics and gynecology. With a passion for food and travel, she set off to Asia, settling in Singapore. She returned to Vancouver in 1998, and established herself as a family physician while also working as a medical consultant for WorkSafeBC. She completed her MBA from Queens University in 2001. Her consulting work at WorkSafeBC involves designing innovative rehabilitation programs for injured workers with complex medical conditions or injuries. Her natural inclination to seek solutions for any problem big or small, from reducing the impact of work injuries for the injured worker to addressing her very own skin concerns, has led her to establish Lift. With Lift, she hopes to improve the health of everyone's skin, by cleaning the skin, one face at a time.
Thuy is a clinical pharmacist with special interests in medical aesthetics and chronic pain management. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy from the University of British Columbia in 1994 and the Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Washington in 2010. The field of aesthetic medicine is a perfect mix for her skills and passion because she has always enjoyed looking good and helping others around her look good. Combining her knowledge and skills as a Doctor of Pharmacy and her passion for natural beauty, she has spent many years keeping abreast of skin care research and experimenting with various skin care solutions, cosmetics as well as nutraceuticals, in search of the “magic bullet” for healthy and beautiful skin. Many people are unaware that the skin is the largest organ of the body and in order to achieve and maintain healthy and beautiful skin, we need to provide our skin with nutrients from inside out. In addition to performing LIFT Signature Photolaser facials, Thuy also provides counseling on medical grade skin care products and nutraceuticals to help clients look and feel their very best. Thuy is also working as a Pharmacy Advisor at WorkSafeBC, the Workers’ Compensation Board of BC, as well as a pharmacist consultant at Edgewood Healthcare Network Vancouver providing medication management for chronic pain patients.
Julia joins our team bringing values we hold dear. Her kind and friendly disposition radiates when you meet her, and together with her caring, calm demeanor and innate desire to help others, makes her a perfect fit to Lift.
Julia graduated from Thu Duc Technology University in Vietnam in 1981, with an interest in chemistry, food science and nutrition. Upon her arrival in Canada, Julia obtained her Early Childhood Education License from Burnaby College, and for the past 18 years, worked as an Early Childhood Educator in Vancouver and Surrey. In her spare time, Julia volunteered in charity events as a singer and dancer. The experience sparked her interest in beauty, health and wellness. Julia’s strive for excellence brought her to the next chapter, and coupled with her desire to help others, she became a certified Cosmetology Aesthetician Professional of BC.
Julia believes that every woman is uniquely beautiful, and radiant smooth skin starts with good skin care combined with a healthy lifestyle and treatment using advanced technologies. Her greatest reward is to see a patient’s self-confidence restored as they feel more comfortable in their own skin.
When Julia is not hands-on helping patients care for their skin (her massage is ultra-relaxing!), she is enjoying life singing, dancing, swimming, camping, traveling and spending time with her family and friends.
